Apply to the IECE – Indigenous Early Childhood Educators Professional Development Fellowship
The Institute for Native-serving Educators offers a professional development fellowship for teachers serving 3-4 year old Native American students. We invite preschool and Head Start teachers who can commit to the program expectations to apply. This fellowship offers a long-term, cohort-model professional development opportunity focused on culturally responsive teaching. The
program commitment is April – December each calendar year. Due to the workload, first-year teachers are not typically a good fit for the IECE. If you meet the criteria below, you may apply.
We are no longer accepting applications for this program at this time. Please check back periodically. You can also email us at email@example.com if you would like to be added to our contact list.
